School Uniform

These items are only avaliable through our online uniform supplier Stevensons (www.stevensons.co.uk)

Purchasing items from the shop is highly recommended. We have a strict uniform code and the only way that parents can be certain that uniform is correct is to purchase it from the school shop.

The school reserves the right to take disciplinary action against any child whose uniform does not comply with these requirements. For persistent offenders this could result in the child forfeiting their place in the school. The judgement of the Principal will be final in these matters.
